EMT Clinical
The EMT preceptorship is a clinical experience based in the hospital or in the field. The purpose of the preceptorship is to provide students with patient contact experience to allow practice of skills in a clinical setting. A minimum of 8 hours in either the ED or with an Ambulance Service is required - students can finish up their clinical requirement, after that, in either clinical.
